Gay community in Vientiane
I am not gay, but that doesn't mean I am not open to at least know something about the gay community in Vientiane. First of all, it is bigger and way more public than expected. Actually, you may see more often often gay people than even prostitutes here. So, let's go for the night out in the gay community: Vientiane has (at least) three bars that are popular within the gay community. CCC is right next to the Wind West Pub on the corner where the gas station is and offers cocktails, drinks and a Saturday Cabaret show. GQ is located in one of the side streets that connects Rue Settathirat with the riverside. It is also a bar. Most popular from reports I got from some gay friends is the Pack Luck Pub on the way to the airport. Open from 8:00 until closing...cabaret show and theme parties most evenings at 9:30. Downstairs bar with disco music, upstairs lounge for quieter conversation. Soradith, a reported gay friendly guest house with a interesting gay disco just besides should be located on Dongpalan road 244 13 DongpalanRd Dongpalan Thon, but I haven't seen it.
